New Years Nails! - Metallic Gold for 2014

Back with a second post!  I thought I'd share with you how I plan on doing my nails.  I will be wearing this look for New Years, but you're definitely not restricted when you can rock this shiny polish combination!

It's been a couple weeks since I've repainted my nails, so I wanted something classy and metallic for the holidays.  Without a doubt, the star of the show is glittery pink polish.  It is accented on the ring fingers which is hands down--no pun intended--my favorite detail of this look and truly compliments the gold.

A little run down... the polishes mentioned are Sally Hansen's Extreme Wear #465 Coin Flip, Julep It Girl "Queen Anne" and lastly Julep's Oxygen Performance Top Coat.  Both shades only needed two coats with the added glossy top coat.  I love how these shades form a gorgeous shine, especially in sunlight.  The top coat is a new purchase and so far I'm pleased with the results.  I usually paint my nails once I week so I expect A LOT from my polishes. Between work, cleaning, crafting and handling two large dogs, these guys have stood up to the test of time!  

You all have an amazing week and a Happy New Year.  Bring on 2015!  Talk with you all soon.

Love ya lots,

Hello There, Welcome to My Blog!

Hello Everyone! Thanks for poppin' in!

Some quick facts about me: my name is Richelle Spranger and I'm 22-year-old freckled brunette living in South Eastern Michigan.  I live with my amazing boyfriend Paul and our four pets--or should I say  miniature zoo?!  We have two dogs: Aurora & Samantha, Nala our Tabby, and Rio our cute chirping cockatiel parrot.  

I currently work from home doing all sorts of odd jobs, but mostly I sell FBA thru Amazon, with the focus on used books.  In addition to that, sell on eBay here and there and run an Etsy shop: Woodland Rose Home where I specialize in Bohemian themed jewelry and accessories. 

Another thing you'll quickly learn about me--I have a lot of hobbies which include writing, crocheting, jewelry making, baking and decorating.  My mind is constantly flowing with new craft ideas that I can't keep up with them all.  In addition, I have a huge love for natural beauty products and designer handbags---I WILL own some Louis Vuitton one day!  I'm also arguably the biggest animal lover and would easily be the happiest girl in the world if I lived on a farm with dozens of them.  If my boyfriend never said 'no', I promise you we'd have at least a few more pets at home.. haha I know, some may say I'm a little out of control ;)

If you've already read this far: THANK YOU for reading my first ever post.  I promise there will be more.  A lot more!  Feel free to stick around, share & comment--I'd LOVE to hear from you--yes you!  You have a fantastic day and a wonderful New Year.  

Love ya lots,
